Closed Door Security, a leading provider of attack-driven cybersecurity services, today announced it has joined the Cyber Scheme, reinforcing its position as one of the UK’s leading and most widely accredited penetration testers.
The Cyber Scheme provides the highest standard of government approved examinations and is essential for technical consultants wishing to gain the NCSC CHECK status, to allow them to carry out penetration testing on public sector and critical national infrastructure networks.
As a member of the Cyber Scheme, Closed Door Security will be supporting red teaming projects, improving penetration testing standards, helping assess examinations, while also raising cybersecurity awareness and educating more organisations on threats. Closed Door Security is one of the only Scottish companies to join the scheme, which already boasts some of the UK’s most established penetration testing organisations.
“We are delighted to join the Cyber Scheme and be rubbing shoulders with some of the UK’s pen-testing giants. We are now one of the most highly-accredited cybersecurity companies in Scotland, and joining the Cyber Scheme supports us on our journey to become NSCS CHECK certified. Cybersecurity continues to shatter organisations every day, and we, as defenders, need to make it harder for criminals to exploit our Infrastructure. Penetration testing helps unearth weaknesses in systems that often go unnoticed, so with every weakness we find, and every company we educate, we firmly close a door on attackers,” said William Wright, CEO of Closed Door Security.
Closed Door Security is the only cybersecurity company based in the Outer Hebrides, and it was recently accredited by the internationally-recognised professional certification board Crest, as being a trusted and expert provider of penetration testing. The company experienced significant growth over the last year, taking on eight new employees and expanding into the United States market with Closed Door Security (US) LLC.
